Web Accessibility and Quality Testing

Description

To ensure that your websites comply with State and Federal laws on Section 508 accessibility we can scan and monitor your website for accessibility compliance. The scan can provide a report of broken links and pages that are not accessible. In addition we can also provide recommendations on how to improve the overall speed of your pages so that people with different connection speeds to the internet will be able to have a good experience viewing your site.

  • Maintains accessibility compliance as per State and Federal laws.

Q:What standards does my website have to comply with?
A:
The University of Texas-Pan American Handbook of Operating Procedures (HOP) section 8.9.2, details the computer and information technology use policy.

Web publishers are responsible for the content of the pages they publish and are expected to abide by the highest standards of quality and responsibility. These responsibilities apply to all publishers, whether they are colleges, departments, student or employee organizations, or individuals. Users must not assume that their information is restricted to the campus community. Faculty, staff, and students may not use web pages for commercial activity.

In addition your website must comply with the State and UT System Accessibility policies. Best practices can be found in our procedures outlined here.
